Now that we have 6500k lighting above the car, how do we remove the shadows at the front or rear of the car? At the beginning, we used portable lamps with 500 watt daylight balanced bulbs. But those bulbs burned out rather quickly and honestly they didn’t do a whole lot for the car. We need something stronger that will light up the features of the car from a horizontal aspect without washing out the car or putting more light reflections on the car.
As I was driving back from Pennsylvania yesterday, I stopped at the Sheetz gas station in Meadville, PA. After purchasing supper, I walked back to the car and saw the same dilemma. The lights from the top lit up the top and sides of the car but not the grill. But what if there was another set of lights hung right above the front of the car? Would you they give enough light to take care of the shadows? See the pictures below for the results.
The first thing I noticed was that the grill has more light than before. But does it make enough of a difference to hang an extra set of lights above the grill? In the imperfect situation at the gas station, it did take away some of the shadows but not all of them. I am wondering if hanging an extra set of lights at an angle would bounce the light off the floor and into the shadows and grill. What do you think?
